O’s Notes: The band members share characteristics of Scandinavian countries including some affinities for food and more importantly, music. The most recognizable of them is trumpet player Ingrid Jensen. The rest of Nordic Connect are her sister, Christine Jensen (sax), Maggi Olin (p), Mattias Welin (b) and producer Jon Wikan (d). The women wrote the nine songs and they reflect experiences in their lives. Ingrid calls it “happy-sad” music. The tones are mostly blue especially on “Garden Hour” and the delivery is precise.
